Matrix by Hunter Seamons using Final Cut Pro (SHN & FLAC>AIFF>Final Cut>WAV>SHN)
April 3, 2008
Thank you to mayormarionbarry and Charlie Miller for their beautiful work and seeds at etree.
1) While there are minor gaps in all sources at various places, there is a three-minute gap in the AUD patch (Sennheiser 421) during Drums, so only the SBD plays for part of Drums.
2) The speeds of all sources were relatively close (within 1%), so there were no MAJOR speed changes.
3) I was extremely impressed with the results of merging these sources. (I have abandoned several other matrix projects simply because I do not like how the sources sound together.) While the Set I SBD is significantly better than the Set II SBD, which sounds "flat," the AUD source really rounded out the sound in Set II. I would say this is my best sounding matrix yet in terms of fullness of sound and syncing techniques - and an amazing show! Set II has some awesome moments as well - I like Space a lot.

great recording & treatment. The David Dyche AUD sounds better, though.

Believe it or not...
I fixed this mtx TWICE. (My third mtx show up to that point and a tough learning moment). Look for the real deal on shnid-92424. It's the real deal

The show after St. Stephen
This is one of those shows that I missed and regretted big time, mainly for the To Lay Me Down and of coarse the monster Sugaree. The energy from Hartford two nights before is takening to amazing heights. These matrix shows from Hunter are a blast and sound great. If you have never heard this Sugaree it is easily one of the best in the 80's. Passionate,soulful and long. The Rooster is ripping too. The FOTD is excellent, a nice way to come back down to earth, with Jerry playing those majestic solos that build the emotional intensity of the song.Esau is one of the best with a great cowbell groove at the begining. Bird Song is a monster and intense with searing runs by Jerry, he then brings it down real poetically going back into the final verse.Another ripping Bucket, it is the least I could do!, although maybe the loosest played song of the night.The end of the set is stellar with Deal bookending the Sugaree with wild abandoment. It clocks in over 70 minutes too. Set two starts with a finely played and intense Touch,it fast and in your face. Samson is ripping, really Brent is all over it on the B3. To Lay Me Down is simply beautiful, this is the one song I never heard live, and this version reminds me of the 6/28/74 version. It is that good.Women and Terrapin continue the magic. The Wheel will remind you of the Fox Theatre from 1977,I love the other post about the dancing. Then it is rock and roll the rest of the set. They rip into Miracle and then a racing GDTRFB that is superb. Jerry is glistening.Brent is amazing this show too.Good Lovin is excellent with Bob giving it a great reading. This version of Revolution is rocked out more than 10/22/83 and is quite good.I would love to read more posts about being at this show.

Just Exactly Perfect Band
This show is everything I ever loved about this Band. From the almost 20 minute Sugaree opener to the last licks of Revolution---this is absolutely outstanding!! Every song is it's own highlight on this night. This matrix upload is quite a gift!! Thanks a million.

This is the one!
This copy is sooo full! It sounds absolutely pristine! Excellent work, Hunter.
If you are a Sugaree fan, this is the one: lots of Jerry, almost 17 minutes! FOTD, which I have been burned out on for the last couple of years, has some interesting parts.
Nice, delicious "Samson". This show seems to have longer than normal versions of the songs, at least so far.
But it is the sound quality that should make you take a listen (and tune selection).
